hello all.

I have long been an electronics freak, however I have always strayed away from the programming aspect. So I know very little about all of this.

I wanted to create a simple program on an EEPROM chip (24c08). From what I have gathered, I have to purchase a programming machine....., right? I would have thought that there was a way to program the chip with simple software, through the serial port.... or something of that nature. Please help.

-regards-

what do you expect to achieve from programming your eeprom?

If you load a program into it, it wont do anyting..... :(

Eeproms are for storing( data) and are not executable devices like pics or micro's.

I admire your passion for experimentation and building, but why re-invent the wheel ?
To drive an lcd to display the info you require is not a light hearted task


I'd suggest going with the circuit you already have
